Don't just type, talk to your audience. Blogging is way big a market on internet and people will like you if you do more than just providing information. Suggest, express, appreciate, criticize and have an opinion to build a relativity to a like minded audience. Make them feel that their visit to your blog matters to you.
Write straight from your Heart...Write for a Cause and Not for an Applause!!
People come to your blog out of choice and not any compulsion. If you remember this, the rest is not important enough.
